Custom food magazine design artwork tips:
The first, you need to add spine thickness between front cover and back cover, when you start doing cover artwork. Please tell us the size, inner page amount and inner paper. We will calculate the spine thickness for you. If you don’t know how to do the cover with spine thickness. We can do a cover template for you and this service is free. When you design the content on the spine, please make sure the width of LOGO or texts on spine is shorter than spine thickness of 2mm.
The second, if there are some ads in your food magazine, please make sure the ads page size is same as your magazine size. Don’t forget to add 3mm bleed on ads page top, bottom, left and right.
The last, for A4 size magazine, the regular margin is 15mm. The page numbers on cutting side or middle are better. To be safe, please don’t design the page numbers on binding side.
Custom food magazine printing and binding tips:
The first, we know being ECO-friendly is very important for a food magazine. Therefore, we print food magazines with soy ink. Soy ink is really good at showing the colors after printing and it is eco-friendly. We also can provide FSC paper for the food magazine. Our factory does not have FSC certificate, But we can offer a wide variety of FSC paper for you to choose. Some food magazines want a natural feel, so the designer prefers to use offset paper. That is a good idea, if you want the color printed on offset paper to not be as bright and shiny as color printed on coated paper. But it looks more natural and is ECO-friendly.
The second, to make the food magazine photo brighter, we suggest using gloss art paper for the magazine interior. And we suggest doing gloss lamination to the outside cover because it protect the cover well and it looks shiny.
The third, if some pictures are across 2 pages, we suggest you doing sewn and perfect binding magazine. Sewing and perfect binding will make your magazines open flatly and one photo crossed two pages can be connected well.
The last, we are a professional offset printer. Our MOQ is 100pcs. But more than 500pcs, it is economical. If you print less than 100pcs, digital printer is better. Printing more, offset printer is better.
For oversea printing, it takes more than 3 weeks for sea shipment from China to USA, Australia, Canada etc. So if the magazine is large quantity and it is monthly magazine, it doesn’t have enough time to print in China. For small quantity and the total weight is less than 200kg, DHL shipment or economy FedEx shipment can catch your distribution time. Any question about shipping, please check our shipping and delivery page or contact our experts.
